Overview

[This edition is in Bulgarian.] In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight,” For Whom the Bell Tolls. The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo’s last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.

when I purchased this book I made a mistake. I did not notice it was in Bulgarian, so I could not read the book. I did however go to the library and checked it out. The book was very different from what I expected. I did enjoy it. It had rather long narratives on what people were thinking. This a excellent book for a book club and we are doing just that

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway was an Excellent book to read because it made me feel if I was at the Spanish civil that lasted form 1936–1939 because the passages where really described with details. The most deception that I liked was when some characters described there past before the war and what they felt towers it. Diana Sanchez
